Where do you place your trust when you take a leap of faith?

I was driving today and a song came on the radio about a boy who could fly because he didn’t know he couldn’t. It went something like this:

Spread your arms
Hold your breath
And remember to trust your cape.

What is it you are not doing in your career, life, relationships, as a parent, a friend, a writer, a teacher, an athlete that you’re not doing because you think you can’t? Perhaps you’ve not even analyzed it, or didn’t think carefully about something because you assumed it was beyond you.

The filters of your subconscious may be sabotaging your success and your happiness.

Take risks that are in line with your values, your desires and your passions.
Don’t allow these belief system filters (or fears) to hold you back; make conscious decisions. Remind yourself that life is about taking risks, otherwise you will find you’re existing as opposed to really living.

Don’t allow others to define who you are. It is impossible to be a failure without your own consent. Likewise, it’s impossible to be a success without your own consent.

So spread your arms, hold you breath and trust your cape.

What or who is your cape?

Dale Carnegie, "All life is a chance. The person who goes farthest is the one who is willing to do and dare."

“Just go out there and do what you’ve got to do.” Martina Navratilova
